Ema datshi is a spicy, cheesy bit of goodness, is also the national dish of Bhutan. You can adjust the types of chilies you use based on your heat tolerance. This would normally be made with yak cheese, however I could not find any, so I searched for alternatives and found that mixing a sheep feta with a gorgonzola makes for a pretty close replica, I understand. That was what I used and the dish was awesome, enjoy!
